The offer for the tour didn't fit with the real tour.
We, my husband and I , booked a 3 day lasting Safari tour including a sight seeing tour in Kigali and entering the park and check in at the Lodge in the Akagera National Park on the first day.
On the second day we made a Safari tour in the Akagera National Park.
BUT on the third day a Safari experienced person of our group ordered an additional guide in advance who was specialized on birds. We weren't asked nor informed of this special bird tour on the third day of our Safari tour. The tour partially was very detailed discussing about the shape of the wings or colour of the bird legs.
We think being not informed of this special bird tour in advance is not a client friendly policy. We even still don't know if we had and how much we had to pay for the additional guide / additional programme we didn't order.
Btw Jimmy, our main guide did a great job.

Our time in Rwanda trekking to the mountain gorillas and golden monkeys was absolutely amazing.
Our time in Rwanda was perfect from the moment we met Jean Marie at the airport upon arrival until he left us at the airport on our departure. My daughter and I fell in love with Rwanda and its beautiful people. Jean Marie was wonderful, such a kind and caring person. He is the perfect ambassador for Rwanda. Our time with the the gorillas was breathtaking. Everything was so organized. It is an experience we will always cherish. The tour exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed seeing some of Rwanda in the afternoons after our morning treks. We also enjoyed our visit with the golden monkeys. It was a fun way to end our visit. We highly recommend Makario Safaris. You provided my daughter and I with a vacation we will remember forever. Thank you!

I highly recommend makario safari, for anyone seeking to travel in one of East Africa destination.

Once in a lifetime experience!
We did a 6-day tour with Makario Safaris, with Jean-Marie as our guide. Makario Safaris was extremely flexible with the planning to create the best experience based on our travel requirements (we had a late flight on our last day, so they suggested changing our itinerary to do things in the reverse order than planned) and what we wanted to see. Jean-Marie was an amazing guide - friendly, knowledgeable, and very passionate about biodiversity and Rwanda. He knew all of the wildlife and how to spot them. We didn't have to worry about anything on our trip because everything was planned so well, yet still flexible in case plans changed or the weather was bad. We paid a very fair price for our whole trip, very good food and hotels. Our trip to Rwanda was an unforgettable experience for our first time in Africa. We highly recommend Makario Safaris and also Jean-Marie as a guide!

The tour operators were nice and helpful.
When we organised the trip, our correspondent was correct and flexible. The drivers were also nice and helpful, and really tried to make the most of our trip. We saw a lot of animals (rhinos, buffalos, giraffes, zebras, lots of birds, antelopes, etc). The hotels, restaurants, boat trip included were all fine.
However, our car broke down as soon as we arrived to the National park and we had to wait hours for replacement in a camping. When we got a replacement car, which we had to use for the rest of the safari, its roof was not working properly and it was smaller, so one of us had to sit in the middle (not ideal for seeing things). Its back door was regularly stuck so at the end of the trip we almost couldn't get our luggage out. I think a safari firm should either have working cars, or a working emergency plan for such cases (and possibly both).

Such a professional and thoughtful business - even though my booking was so last minute. John was the most fantastic driver and had an incredible knack finding rare and unique animals. And he is a fun and engaging conversationalist! I really recommend a trip to Akagera... it was breathtaking and incredible

Jean-Claude is the best!
My 16-year old daughter and I had the pleasure of experiencing a 4-day 3 night Rwanda adventure with Makario Safaris and it was wonderful. We did 1.5 days in Akagera National Park, visited Lake Kivu, and did the rainforest canopy walk and primate trek in Nyungwe National Park. To hit all of these places in this short amount of time requires a considerable amount of driving, but our guide Jean-Claude was top notch and an excellent driver. The fact that the landscape is simply amazing makes the experience of getting from place to place all the better. The Makario team was super communicative/responsive and provided options and pricing based on the preferences I provided. The trip was seamless, from when Jean-Claude picked us up until he dropped us off. Can't say enough good things about him. We only wish the trip cold have been longer!
